The Story

Join us in celebrating the one-year anniversary of the Rotary PlayGarden! Since grand opening in May 2015, we have welcomed over 237,000 visitors, smashing projections and proving the need for an accessible park in our community.

Help us continue to maintain an inclusive, clean, and safe place for children of all abilities to play by pledging your support of annual operating costs.

Your gift allows us to:
•    $25 - Purchase four bags of sand
•    $60 - Buy one gallon of stain for the park benches
•    $100 - Purchase three weeks of maintenance supplies
•    $225 - Staff the PlayGarden for one weekend day
•    $240 - Pay for one month's trash service
•    $1,575 - Staff the PlayGarden for one week

Your gift of $50 or more includes a complimentary membership with Guadalupe River Park Conservancy. If you are already a member, we’ll extend your membership another year.

Guadalupe River Park Conservancy’s goal is to maintain the cleanest and safest place to play in the South Bay. As Conservancy employees, Rotary PlayGarden Attendants play a key role in that effort, greeting guests at the gate, enforcing park rules, and performing daily maintenance tasks. While paid attendants were an unanticipated cost, they have proven essential in pursuit of this goal, as evidenced by testimonials from guests:

“My kids love this place! I do too. It's very clean, it's safe and the equipment is fun. I love that there is only one way in and out of the park. It's so much easier to see where your kids are and let them play freely.”

“It's such a perfect safe place to bring your lil ones! I love how it's gated and there is always someone watching over the area. My son loves coming here!”

Did you know that the Rotary PlayGarden almost didn’t get built? When the Rotary Club of San Jose’s proposal went to the San Jose City Council in 2010, the City had already adopted a moratorium on building new parks - unless there was a privately-funded maintenance plan.

Rotary didn’t have the means to maintain it after raising $6M for construction, but, with Guadalupe River Park Conservancy's commitment to operate and maintain the park, the project to build San Jose’s first all-inclusive playground moved forward.
